The Lost Squadron
A True StoryBook - 1994
In July 1942 a squadron of brand-new American warplanes desperately needed by the Allied war effort was flying to England via Greenland and Iceland. Caught in a blinding blizzard and running short of fuel, the two B-17 bombers and six P-38 Lightnings crashlanded on Greenland's vast glaciers. The crews were evacuated safely, but the aircraft had to be left behind.
